What is my responsibility as a business owner?

Each cross-connection must be eliminated or properly protected by an approved backflow preventer.  All work done on the internal plumbing system of your facility must be performed by a state-licensed plumber.  Any changes to your plumbing must be approved by your local plumbing inspector.
